Every one of us has a bad habit, or two, that we are aware of. Most of the time we don't like to admit to these bad habits, but when we're honest we know about them and usually loathe them. Spend some time writing in your journal about these bad habits, but give them to someone else; either a fictional character or someone you know. This is your journal, but it would be a good idea if the real person never had any idea you had done this journal writing prompt with them in mind.
Play up the bad habit/s for this person. Take the badness to the extreme. Write out everything you really dislike about the habit and come to some kind of a resolution, a conclusion over what the character should do to break the habit. I hope you enjoy this journal writing prompt and find some kind of personal release in writing about these habits.
